Apple has just released the RC beta version of macOS Big Sur 11.2 for developers. This update, considering the lack of new features in the previous version and the one before it, surely focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements.
macOS 11.2 RC beta: the penultimate step
After the release of the beta RC version of iOS 14.4, iPadOS 14.4, tvOS 14.4 and watchOS 7.3, Apple continues with the development of the operating system that gives life to the Mac. In this version we do not expect news but bug fixes and performance improvements. Recall that macOS Big Sur is the first operating system compatible with Macs with Apple silicon, so these computers (and those rumored for this spring) may receive further optimization.
As always it is important to remember that, although we can install this update on our Macs, it is still a Beta version. Although it is a second version of the final version already presented to the public, it still contains some bugs so it should not be installed on computers for daily use.
If you are already in the beta cycle, you will find the update in System Preferences as an OTA update. During the first hours Apple’s servers may receive more demand than usual, so the waiting time may be longer.
